I'm going to talk about Photo Stream for a few movies and I'm really excited…about this because I think this is a terrific service that integrates well with…both Aperture and iPhoto.…Now, to setup your own Photo Stream first thing you do is you go to System…Preferences as we've done here and you go to iCloud just like this and you make…sure that the Photo Stream box is checked.…You also have a couple of options here, just turn on My Photo Stream, turn on…the Shared Photo Streams, click OK, and you're done in System Preferences.…
So, now we can go into the applications themselves.…Now, the thing about Photo Stream and we're going to talk more about this in…upcoming movies is that you can only enable it for iPhoto or for Aperture at a…time so you have to make a choice.…If you decide on iPhoto, you got to Preferences, go to Photo Stream and…you check the boxes.…Now, I recommend that you don't check all of the boxes, you leave this one…unchecked and we're going to get into that when we talk about workflow.…
